Go back to 1936 with Films van Toen: Prince Bernhard visits Assen. The town runs out to catch a glimpse of the prince

Old films experience new times at DVHN. And you can watch them from the couch. DVHN, in collaboration with the Drents Archief, broadcasts a Drenthe archive film every Sunday.

Filmmakers have been making images of Drenthe for a hundred years. Amateurs and professionals. In black and white and later in color. This year the Drents Archief looks back on a century of films in the province. We start in the 20s and end in the 90s.

With today: Prince Bernhard. On September 8, 1936, Princess Juliana became engaged to Bernhard van Lippe-Biesterfeld. Just before the engagement took place, the prince-to-be visited Assen. He was welcomed by dozens of children. Image: Asser Film Club.
